The Postman

If you think this is a remake of Italy's Il Postino, you are wrong (or America's remakes are MUCH worse than I thought).

It's is a BAD movie made from a GOOD book. That didn't stop me from watching it (again) the other night. Basically it's "Waterworld" but with mail instead of water.


Anywho, there are some nice satchels in the film. Unfortunately not a lot of great pictures of said satchels on the webs. take a gander at these:

Then J. Crew went and knocked it off* for $800 bones (some flesh too)

I kind of hope they make a waterworld bag.

*Please note, they call it "original" even though it is a recreation.


I just found a whole website devoted to "the way we carry things"

Right now they only make wallets, but I think they are lovely wallets. I think I have to get one of the hide & seek wallets.

With a Satchel, I currently carry two wallets (one with business stuff and checks and whatnot, the other with cash, ID and the stuff I need on the regulars), so maybe I will get the take out wallet. but all of their wallet are so loverly

Not a Purse, nor a curse

Copied word for word from PUT THIS ON. an authoritative take on men's fashion and appropriateness.

"This “man purse” talk has to stop.

People of both genders carry bags. In these bags, they put their stuff. Women carry purses and briefcases and plenty of other styles. Men carry briefcases and messenger bags and plenty of other styles. This is how it is and how it will always be.

Calling a man’s bag a “man purse” is like calling his shirt a “man blouse.”

Give it a rest."

Male (mail) bag

The mailman, there's a guy who knew how to carry a bag.

this guy is giving the milkman a run for his money

check this one out for sale.

Find me a Satchel

So I am looking for a good Satchel. SOmething rugged, but not a huge bag, something for my iPad, wallet, and keys and sometimes a camera. What do you think about these Fossil Bags?

I think I like the commuter bags most, but seriously, why all the buckles?

Or check out these bags from ZARA.

No wonder satchels get a bad rap when so many designers either make the look like purses, or SO manly that they aren't useful.

I have a really great satchel that I got from, but I don't think they even make it anymore. It's the perfect size for my iPad and I don't have to carry my keys or phone in my pocket.

The Poor man's poor man.

How is it that the poor man's Dane Cook* is still working?
Must be something he is carrying in his satchel.

*Dan Cook is our generation's Joe Piscapo.

We've got you surrounded

and every one of us is wearing a satchel.

By any other name?

I don't know how to add a poll, but what's the best name?

Possibles Bag
Murse (gross)
Jack Bag
Messenger Bag

He is legend

despite the satchel, or because of it?

I try so hard

But then Google puts these ads here ------------>

The Satchel to End all Satchels

If it's good enough to help you liberate Europe, then it's good enough for me.

He'll put down the bullwhip

but not the satchel

Anything is Possible

When you have a leather satchel

The Mountain Men wore satchel's and called the "possibles bags" You can buy them at all sorts of places online. They would keep everything you need for your flintlock rifle in there. My Grandpa has a whole Mountain Man room, an awesome mustache and is one of the strongest symbols of masculinity that I know.

Go ahead, just call it a purse

but say it to his face

(check out art here)

That's not a bag

This is a bag.

Probably the toughest Jack Bag anywhere

(you can buy one here)

Quit looking at this guy

He has nothing to do with our conversation

How do you know when he is ready to kill?

When he has his satchel on.

The use of the Jack Bag is well documented on PopSuede.

You can call it a purse

But he'll tear your arm off.

Guess who carries a Satchel

This guy

Guess when he stopped wearing a satchel?

Uh right around this time:

It's not the bullwhip that makes the man, it's the satchel.

It's not a purse

How could a page named after this guy even be thought of as feminine?
